Life in Costa Rica is in many ways similar to life on Cape Cod. Yet there are also many, many differences.
One BIG difference is that here in Costa Rica, it is very possible to catch a fish and then find yourself eating that same fish for lunch less than an hour later.
You can do the same thing on Cape Cod, but not during January and February! Fortunately the weather in Costa Rica is sunny and hot year-round.
Back on Friday January 11th 2019, I was casually reading my book on the beach in Costa Rica at the leisurely hour of 11:30am. As you will see in this video I had the entire place all to myself - with the exception of the local dog, Rocky!
Ryan was fishing (big surprise I know) in the water in front of me when I heard him let out a sudden shriek of excitement. I turned to see Ryan hooked up with a fish. Luckily the fish stayed on the hook long enough to pull it up on the beach.
We would now be having fresh Spanish mackerel for lunch!
As part of the video we have included a little segment about filleting the mackerel, as well as a "cooking the catch" segment hosted by yours truly at the super simple kitchen in our little beach house.
